The two boxers widely recognized as the most talented in the exciting cruiserweight division will square off when undefeated WBC champion Wayne “Big Truck” Braithwaite faces his WBA counterpart, Jean-Marc Mormeck, in an eagerly anticipated world title unification bout this Saturday, April 2, on Showtime. The division’s most enthralling match-up in years – and the first world cruiserweight unification fight since 1988 – will be shown at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) from Worcester, Mass. Don King Productions will present the event.

WAYNE BRAITHWAITE (21-0 17 KOs)

“I am very grateful to Showtime, Don King and everybody who made this fight happen. I am very confident and very focused.”

“I really do not see how Mormeck can win, especially if he is lying on his back. This is my coming out party. I am more excited for this than I was for when I fought for the title.”

“I do not know how to lose. He does. He is talking a lot, and saying that I am scared, but I am not scared.”

“He will not be going back to France with my belt, or any belts. If the knockout comes, it comes. But I am ready to go 12 rounds and show all my skills and boxing ability.”

“I really think that he might quit.’’

JEAN-MARC MORMECK (30-2 21 KOs)

“I am not going to put extra pressure on myself, but I know I have a chance to make history and become the first boxer from my country to be a unified world champion. That would be a very big accomplishment.”

“But my concentration is just on winning Saturday night. I am not well known in the United States now, but I will be after Saturday night. I did not come all this way to lose.”

“Braithwaite can say a lot of things, but none of it is going to happen. What will happen is that I will win and be unified champion.”

“I have never been in better shape.  He has never fought anybody like me. This will be a hard fight, but I like hard fights.’’
